Greenleaf started her career as an airborne traffic reporter for KGO radio in San Francisco in 1999. The next year she moved back to the East Coast and reported traffic on NY1, which segued into hard news reporting for RNN TV in Queens, NY. NYC TV took notice of Greenleaf and gave her a shot doing her own lifestyle segment called On the Prowl with Cat Greenleaf, which was a self-produced weekly spot, humorously highlighting the unique activities, characters, and quirky traits that defined New York City.
These new sharp pieces were a hit and moved Cat on to hosting a national daily spot as a "roving craft reporter"on DIY Network’s Craftlab. Her upbeat jaunts into cities across the country led first to hosting her own show on the Travel Channel, Vacation Home Search, and then to hosting a second travel show on Treasure HD, Chasing History Home.
Cat moved over to WNBC, where her main gig was the station’s Features Reporter, primarily on Today in New York, and the 11 o’clock News. Her spots were seen on affiliates around the nation, as well as on the national Weekend Today Show, the New York Non-Stop channel, and in all the WNBC taxi cabs around New York City.
Shortly after the birth of her first son, Greenleaf began living the ultimate dream for a working mother: shooting a show on her front steps. Talk Stoop was born, and is now airing in nine cities. Between broadcast, digital, and out-of-home platforms like screens in cabs and on gas pumps across the country, Talk Stoop is viewed nearly 13 million times a week.
Alongside her work on Talk Stoop, Cat co-hosts the radio show Your Weekend with Jim Brickman, which reaches a million listeners across the country.
Greenleaf is also deeply committed to LUST -- Look Up Stop Texting. She began a small accessories line, LUSTbklyn.com , to reminding us all to stop texting, start living. LUST has been sold at Macy’s in NYC and Fred Segal in LA. LUSTbklyn has a handbag line coming out later this year.
Cat currently resides in Brooklyn, NY with her husband, two sons, and two dogs.
